It’s been a while since Mahesh Manjrekar has directed a film, but after enjoyin a series of acting assignments, he is set to don the director’s hat again! Manjrekar is best known for directing hits like Vaastav: The Reality (1999), Astitva (2000) and Viruddh… Family Comes First (2005), among others. He’s always had a unique eye for cinema. The new project that he will direct is a film produced by by film-maker Sanjay Gupta.
Our source told us the following,
“Sanjay and Mahesh are doing a film together. It’s an action thriller. As they know each other for over 15 years, their sensibilities match superbly. Sanjay is confident that Mahesh is the best person to helm his next production.”
Apparently, the yet-untitled film will have a “huge ensemble cast”, comprising 20-25 actors. “Sanjay is planning to erect a huge set at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad for the film,” adds the source.
When contacted, Sanjay, who is currently working on a film featuring Hrithik Roshan, says, “Mahesh is like a family member. I am looking forward to working with him.”
Well, looks like we’ll have to wait for 2016 to get more news on what seems to be a large-scale project! Are you all excited?
